NM Classic Cup Sprint
6 Furlongs Dirt Stake Purse $170.000 Open 3 Year Olds And Up Foaled In NM.
1st Akimbo, trained by End Run Farm
There was nothing surprising about this win apart from the silly HRP starting price of well over 300/1. Coming off a break he showed why he managed a second in the TX Mile last season in coming with a stunning late challenge off a suicidal early pace.
2nd Masterlicious, trained by Night Rider Stables
Went to the front and set a pace akin to a quarter horse. Naturally he didnt last home but did well to hold on for second.
3rd Haynes Away, trained by Stone Creek Farm
Stalked a fast pace and had nothing left down the stretch
